Trump executive order banning Muslim refugees in US ignites a Twitter war

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Washington DC: Finally US President Donald Trump seems to be doing what he had promised. After signing executive order to construct a wall on its border with Mexico, the US president has signed another order banning refugees from Muslim nations.

To further compound the problem of Syrian people, who have been struggling to find a refuge anywhere in the world, it is a double whammy. Refugees from Syria have been put under blanket ban till further notice from the Donald Trump administration.

In the meantime, the hawkish US President has suspended the entire US refugee programme for as many as 120 days. While signing the executive order, the newly installed US president said that the moves would help protect Americans from “terrorist” attacks.


If the ban on the entry of the seven nations is not enough, the new administration has said that it is also establishing new vetting measures to “keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America. Don’t want them here”.

Trump went on to add, “We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people”.


The decision to ban refugees in the US has reportedly unnerved many of United States’ old allies in Europe and elsewhere. France and Germany are “concerned” over Trump’s move to restrict refugee arrivals, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said. “This decision can only cause us concern,” he said following a meeting with his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel. “Welcoming refugees who are fleeing war is part of our duty.”

On the other hand, human rights activists in the US are worried over the increased Islamophobia that will follow the new steps being taken by the new US administration. A senior official of Human Rights Watch, Grace Meng, said “Trump’s latest executive order is likely to hurt the people most in need: those fleeing violence and terrorism – and on Holocaust Remembrance Day, no less…The decision to drastically curtail the refugee programme will abandon tens of thousands to the risk of persecution or worse and cede American leadership on a vitally important issue”.
